    Ever used methyl theobromine - aka caffeine? The most widely used recreational drug on the planet. Sold in every cafe and supermarket.

Size:  2.96 MB , an important knife for me this one. Last of the lock down knives I got finished. Stainless 14c28n stainless Mamba. Stabilized Rimu with lime green Juma snake skin handles. G10 liners and pin stock.
    This is the last knife to come off my little 1 x 30 grinder.
    It's nearly worn out now but has been a great little machine and I have learned a hell of a lot using it.
    I now have my 2 x 72 grinder running so the level and learning go up again.

    Scouser’s Bushcraft Knife Project Phase 3

    The red G10 Liners arrived from @Shelley, big thanks mate, he also sent me some S/S pipe and brass rod for the rivets, I decided to make all 3 Stainless Steel….

    So first was to open up the existing holes in the blank handle from 5mm to 8mm in my milling jig

    Then turn the two S/Steel pins

    Then score up the blade handle section with the Dremel to give the Epoxy glue a good chance to stick, and rough up both sides of the Liners……

    Haven't been doing any knifemaking lately, but started this little project tonight.

    1x old set of sheep hand shears
    1x spiker antler (right hand)

    Just testing handle fit and balance before annealing the blade to straighten and remove the set, grind in the bevels, heat treat, fit the handle and sharpen.

    Should make a cool little kitchen knife for hunting expeditions

    What a brilliant idea to use the old shears, looking forward seeing the next steps to something truly innovative and kreative,
    thanks for sharing !

    Used a Dremel to ‘scuff’ up both the scales and liners for better epoxy adhesion

    Here's where I need some advice from the knife making gurus…..i know I have to finish the scales where the knife ends and the tang starts, shall I copy this example as its my 1st go….?

    Yup that looks good.

    Use the pin holes to connect the scales together, this keeps the scales even, just work like it's one piece of material.

    Rough cut the radius first test fitting for looks. Once you are happy with the profile of the front scribe a line on the top of the scale both sides to set your chamfer. Shape your chamfer and then finish sand the ends. It's super hard to sand the scale end without scratching the blade so completely finish it before glueing the scale.

    Scouser’s Bushcraft Knife Project Phase 5

    Probably an unorthodox way of doing it, but the sander/linersher I have at work is not ideal & purpose built

    So ive cut out the excess on the bandsaw, plenty of meat on my ‘Coke Bottle’ shaped handle

    Fine finishing next on where the handle meets the blade….have to be careful now….
